Project Description

Client:   Steve Smith
Client Location:   Bridgwater, Somerset
Layout Size: 7ft x 2ft 4ins
Completed:   March 2015
Thornley TMD is a fictional depot based in the and around the South yorkshire area and its main allocation of locomotives comes from the Railfreight distribution sector, predominantly class 47’s.

Depot Era

Locomotives seen on Thornley are based on the era from the late 1980’s up until the early 1990’s

A number of liveries can be seen, from Large Logo Blue, BR Blue, Old Railfreight Grey, the revised Red Stripe Railfreight Grey and the ever popular Railfreight Distrubtion two-tone grey with sub sector markings. Thornley’s allocation of locos will include classes 08. 20, 37, 47, 56, 58 and class 60.

In April 2016, Steve decided to sell Thornley TMD to start a new layout inside a log cabin. Steve finally completed the cabin in mid May and the start of Project Thornley 2 began with baseboards being built.
